Poll Context: Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair has called for Britain to step up military action to “crush” Isis or be faced with a terrorist “act of such size and horror” that it will result in “many more victims” than the atrocities in Brussels and Paris. The former prime minister warned that the West would face “increasingly frequent acts of terrorism” unless there was concerted action to take on the terrorists and “defeat” the ideology of extremism that fueled them. Writing in The UK Sunday Times, Blair said:
“Isis has to be eliminated with greater speed and vigor.”
Calling for the West to equip Arab ground forces, he writes: “Where they need active on-the-ground military support from us, we should give it. They [Isis] have to be crushed.”
